The new five-year period for the Nordplus programmes has been approved by the Nordic Council and the Nordic Council of Ministers. The call for applications to Nordplus in 2018 has now been published.


Today, the 2nd November 2017, at the Nordic Council’s session in Helsinki the Nordplus programme and the budget for 2018-2022 has been approved.


Nordplus is the Nordic Council of Ministers’ largest education programme for educational cooperation and lifelong learning. Every year a total amount of 9.3 million euro is granted to projects, networks and exchanges of pupils, students and teachers in and between the Nordic and Baltic countries.

All together approximately 2.800 educational institutions and organisations involved with education and training take part in projects and networks under Nordplus every year.
